The Waiting Room advent video

Written By:
Andy Stinson
Bible Refs: James 5:7-11
Lectionary Weeks: Third Sunday of Advent (Year A)

This video revolves around the themes of waiting and patience associated with advent, and in particular the Bible text James 5:7-11. It begins with a light-hearted audio section, and then moves into images, Bible quotes and reflective questions. It could work at any point during advent or when you are considering the Second Coming, or patience in hardship.

The video is a collaboration between Dave Hopwood, Andy Stinson and Sam Hargreaves. Thanks to the generous AREA 52 Crowdfunders, we were able to have a creative day in October 2016. The discussions at this day sparked the ideas for this video, and we then went away to work on our contributions. If you want to play your part in supporting free, Bible-based creative worship ideas, you can still give here.






Andy is married to Cat, Dad to Isaac and a curate working in Chester Diocese. He is enthusiastic about using lots of different media types to draw lots of different people into worship. He writes songs and poems, makes videos, powerpoints and tries to bring new worshippers to appreciate old forms of worship.

Brilliant - thanks so much for this. Fits perfectly in the café style worship I'm planning for next Sunday.
